Hi from the Chicago Seminars (where miles and points junkies come to learn about all things related to miles, points, airline programs, etc)! I’m going to be away from the computer much of the weekend due to presenting, learning, and just hanging out at the Chicago Seminars, but I wanted to drop a quick note to say that my Sears purchases made during the United 16x (that stacked with the Freedom 5x) promo from earlier this week have started posting in my United MileagePlus Shopping account.
When I made my purchases on 10/8 it expressly stated that gift cards were included, though in subsequent days that changed to no mention of gift cards in the terms, all the way to it now saying that gift cards are excluded (quick spike in gift card orders?!).
I only bought one $50 e-gift card, but it did indeed earn 800 MileagePlus miles shown below. Another order of mine has posted too, but that amount appears to be just a part of a larger order, so it will likely be a few more days before I know how it all has posted. I can absolutely report that I did earn miles for my e-gift card purchase, which is great! I didn’t go in heavy on the gift cards, but I know many others did.
Are your Sears orders starting to post? What do they look like so far?
